They are three times easier to use than I beam cranes and US studies have shown comparative productivity gains of nearly 30 per cent.
A recent demonstration of their effectiveness showed that children as young as 6 could safely move loads weighing hundreds of kilograms when using workstation cranes. The significance of this is particularly relevant in a time when industry is challenged by an ageing workforce and increased participation by women who are less able to tolerate the lifting or shifting of heavy or repetitious loads.
Workstation cranes are available in Bridge, Monorail and jib layouts. They can be configured to cover almost any floorspace and many factories in the USA and Europe use multiple cranes to provide total factory cover for all lifting activities.
The workstation cranes have rigid runways to provide extra stability and are available in a variety of capacities up to 2000kg that can be customised to fit almost any space.
The installation of a workstation crane effectively creates a safe work cell within which all manual work can be conducted safely and efficiently. The payback comes in two forms - better productivity and significantly reduced injury rates.
A special feature of Safetech's cranes are their wide spans and their ability to be floor or ceiling mounted. An ability to hang multiple bridges off a single crane also increases the users options.
Installation is easy and the modular design allows for simple extension or relocation if necessary.
The cranes have a five year warranty (greater than any other in the industry) and are designed for long life and easy, low cost maintenance.
